Effective solutions for contentious probate

The division of a loved one’s assets is a highly sensitive and emotional time for all involved and can become complicated, especially if the estate is large and includes trusts. Our contentious probate solicitors have the skill, knowledge and experience to help solve all manner of disputes, whether you are making a claim or defending one.

The most common disputes we encounter include:

  • Contesting probate when no will is present

Once you have instructed our contentious probate solicitors to act on your behalf, we will work with you to find the most appropriate course of action. We believe in a constructive, peaceful approach to conflict resolution and aim to resolve the matter through mediation; a confidential session between the parties with the purpose of finding a satisfactory solution without the expense and distress of going to court. However, occasionally court is unavoidable, which is why all our contentious probate solicitors are fully trained to represent you if required.
